You need to more specific, what hardware module are we dealing here?

NAME: "Linecard(slot 1)", DESCR: "Supervisor 6-E 10GE (X2), 1000BaseX (SFP) with 2 10GE X2 ports"

I provided a link, please read it! :)

The Cisco Catalyst Supervisor Engine 6-E also provides flexibility and an easy migration path to 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplinks with dual-purpose X2 slots that can accommodate wire-speed 10 Gigabit Ethernet optics or Cisco Twin Gigabit Converter modules (Figure 2), enabling Gigabit Ethernet SFP optics.

What is the part number for the Cisco Twin Gigabit Converter that allows me to plug the WS-G5486 into the XENPAK slot?
